"Please take the time to RFB - REMEMBER FALLEN BROTHERS
"The Empty Table" … A TOUCHING MEMORIAL to ALL of Our Fallen Firefighters
" Heroes are the people who do what has to be done regardless of the consequences. "
The Empty Table:
The empty table honors those Firefighters who are no longer with us. The Firefighters who were to sit here died in the line of duty and made the supreme sacrifice.
The table is set for 2. Two in and two out…the Firefighter’s rule …
The empty chairs represent who went into a fire and never came out.
The white table cloth represents the purity of attention the fallen comrades possess.
On each plate there is salt which symbolizes the tears shed by family, friends and all who suffer the pain of losing the Firefighters.
There is a slice of lemon representing the bitterness of faith felt by those left behind.
The inverted glass is a reminder that these Firefighters are no longer with us.
The red rose denotes the ultimate sacrifice and shows that we mourn, honor and miss them.
The white rose represents those friends that still breathe.
The last item is the Firefighter’s Flag “Loyal to Our Duty”. It reminds us of the Firefighters that are with us and all those that have gone before us.
Let this be a reminder that we are all brothers and sisters, that we still have respect…
and we will NEVER FORGET !
